I’m going to open myself up to a ton of criticism here, because I’m sure I probably made fun of someone for this at some point in the past.  Here we go anyway…
So I got a new work bag to carry my laptop and whatnot.  My other one started to rip where the shoulder strap [...]

More Train Wraps Spotted

Posted on October 14th, 2008 by The SUBWAYblogger in This just in

By now, most midtown subway riders have heard of, if not seen, the Times Square Shuttle train’s full train wrap (above) for Cities of the Underground.
